The Irina Open Ribbed Cardigan by MLH is different than many other cardigans this fall because it's only 19 inches long while most hang past the hips. This sweater has an oversized shawl collar, ribbed banding at the edges, and long sleeves. It's available in two colors, lagoon and steel.

If you're looking for a cardigan that can stand on its own, we like the Striped Savanah Cashmere Cardigan by C&C California. Made from 100% cashmere, it has a V-neck, four buttons down the front, wide, ribbed banding at the cuffs and hem, and long sleeves. We like the stripes, which make it the center piece of your outfit instead of just a cover up. If you like the stripes, check out the Striped Chantal Deep V Cashmere Sweater too.

We always think about cardigans the most in the fall because we want to extend the life of our favorite summer tanks and camisoles. The 3/4 Sleeve V Neck Cardigan by Juicy Couture is a great one for doing just that. This sweater has seven buttons down the front, welt pockets, ruffle trim at the V-neck, 3/4 length puff sleeves, and ribbed banding at the edges. It is a wool/cashmere/viscose mix and available in three colors (black, essex, and heather instructor).

There are two cute tops here that are similar enough that we decided to put them together in one post. First up is th Petal Camisole by Rebecca Taylor. It has floral appliqué at the bust, ribbed banding and ruching at the waist, ribbed banding at the edges, and adjustable satin straps. It's made from a silk, cashmere, and wool mixture.
Then we have the Petal Cardigan, also by Rebecca Taylor. This sweater has ribbed banding at the waist and edges, floral appliqué at the V-neck, nine buttons down the front, and long sleeves. You could wear this cardigan with the cami above or with anything from a cute t-shirt to your favorite dress.

The Shelly Shrunken Cardigan by Joie is a pointelle sweater (that may be hard to see in the picture) with ten buttons down the front, ribbed banding at the edges, and long sleeves. It's also semi-sheer and available in both heather grey and caviar. Wear your favorite camis from the summer under this cute cardigan to get more use out of them!

The pure DKNY Tie Front Cashmere Cardigan by DKNY is our new favorite cardigan for this fall. Made of 100% cashmere, it has a tie at the front, ribbed banding at the button hem and cuffs, and long sleeves. It's the type of top that can really pull an outfit together, and it's casual and yet would work in so many different situations. We simply love it!

We don't think the Flight Cardigan by LOVE YAYA will work on every body type, but it certainly looks great on the model! This cardigan has a shawl collar, two snap closures at the front, seam detail throughout, and ribbed banding at the placket and long sleeves. It's available in onyx and agave.

We think this is a really handsome cardigan, and we think it'd be a great Mother's Day gift for the Shirt Snob (and we're hoping the Shirt Snob husband is reading this!). The Tie Front Cardigan by Vince is a cotton and cashmere blend with three buttons down the front, pleating and a tie at the front, elastic banding at the neck and cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It'd be great for those air conditioned offices this summer. It's available in black and string.

If you're looking for a cute cover up for those long tanks in your closet, consider the Beach Bomber Jacket by Free People. This cropped cardigan sweater has vertical welt pockets at the front, six snaps down the front, ribbed banding at the edges, elastic banding at the bottom hem, 3/4 sleeves, and a lining. This can also be something you continue wearing into the fall months, so you'll get a lot of use out of it.

The Hookup Cardigan Sweater by Nanette Lepore is a double breasted cardigan with four buttons down the front, button tab detail at the waist, cable detail in the body, ribbed banding at the placket, ribbed banding at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It's a refined and flattering sweater, perfect for many different occasions.
